We spent a few days in Kilkenny recently and we stayed in the lovely Newpark Hotel. A perfect relaxing escape. This hotel provided relaxing rooms, delicious food and a little piece of heaven with the outdoor hot tub. Not only does it offer this… but so much more! What I loved about this hotel was it was the perfect family break with the place full of activities for the kids and families to enjoy together. Normally when visiting a place, you have to look outside the hotel to find things to occupy the kids… well this hotel really provided you with it all.
First up was the mini wildlife farm. From Lamas to Alpacas, Emu’s to Donkey’s and Rabbits to Birds! It was amazing to see children get up close with the animals and even join in feeding them(daily from 10am). It is open from Spring time and allows you to enjoy the big animals and also the cute, fluffy ones.
There is something for all ages at the hotel, from a tree top adventure and zip wire to an adventure playground and our favourite a Go-Karting Track! It was so much fun!! We are big kids after all!!
Now we all know, kids love a little sprinkle of magic and fairy dust so this new feature just was the cherry on top of the cake. A fairy trail runs throughout a woodland path with fairy doors high up in the trees and down low. It is an adventure for kids to try to spot all the fairy houses… even the Elfis Presley house! They can even post a letter to the fairies and ask for a wish to come true…. its magic. Leave a little sparkle wherever you go!
While staying in this hotel in Kilkenny, we just thought it was such an ideal hotel for a family weekend break so of course we had to let you guys in on the secret. A hotel where you don’t have to go far to keep the kids occupied and have some family fun.
Spread your wings and let the Fairy in you fly…
